Not sure if anyone saw it, but Microsoft made an interesting announcement of a new version of Windows at CES. The new version is called “Windows Home Server.” It is a new headless version of Windows that is designed to be managed remoately and integrated within existing home networks. It is designed to solve the same problem that my Samba enabled Linux server in the basement. It does not require a mouse or keyboard and is managed remotely. One of the coolest features is that it includes disk-based backup functionality and it will automatically backup your existing windows servers. It looks to be an interesting addition to the Windows family and I am curious about the cost. Winsupersite has a more comprehensive article on the new produce.
